Guide to UK rivers
The UK Rivers Guidebook provides information about rivers in our region and categorises them into easy/intermediate/difficult/playspot
The canoedaysout site provides information about not too strenuous trips, aimed at a relaxing paddle through the countryside. People share their experiences of canoe trips, by writing about access points and interesting spots, with accompanying photos from along the way.
The club tends to be on the edge of Wales quite a lot of the time. This guide to marine wildlife has lots of good information on wildlife and how to avoid harming it (also a good one to watch if you want to know how to recognise sea birds).
We are lucky to have the Severn Estuary on our doorstep, which gives us plenty of opportunities to take short sea paddling trips along the North Somerset coast around Clevedon. The Severn Estuary has the second highest tidal range in the world, and the tides move extremely quickly, so some care is advisable.
The following links provide details of the tides around this area:
- Easy Tide
- National Tidal and Sea Level Facility (NTSLF)
- Exmouth tides (for the year) courtesy of the marina
If you are going out on to the sea for a long trip, it is advisable to inform the Coastguard when and where you intend paddling. DON'T FORGET to inform the coast guard AFTER you have returned safely,or you may trigger an incident. For non-emergency matters, telephone:(01792) 3666534
